Notes
A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2019 La Croix Ducru-Beaucaillou is deep garnet-purple colored. It skips out of the glass with pretty, effortless notes of kirsch, wild blueberries, and blackcurrant cordial, plus suggestions of camphor, mossy tree bark, and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is tightly wound with bags of youthful black fruit and loads of earthy accents, framed by firm, grainy tannins and lovely freshness, finishing long and minerally.

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Ducru Beaucaillou has emerged as one of the most iconic wines from St Julien. In a commune literally bulging with celebrated estates, Ducru Beaucaillou, under the stewardship of Bruno Borie has hit the front of the pack. A true ‘Super Second’, the estate’s vineyards occupy some 215 hectares although only 75 hectares are used for Ducru. These are largely situated to the east of the D2, running almost all the way to the Gironde and some further inland towards Gruaud Larose. The soils around the chateau are dominated by Gunzian gravel and Cailloux. The estate is not all planted with vines and much of the production is used in the second label, La Croix de Beaucaillou and a separate label, Lalande-Borie. The style of the grand vin is flamboyant, polished and is built for long-term aging.
